Buckingham Street Early Learning & Kinder

Child Care Centre Lara

Buckingham Early Learning and Kinder offers child care in Lara in a homely learning environment with natural outdoor learning spaces for children to challenge their capabilities and extend their imagination. Our dedicated educators are dedicated to building mutually respectful and caring relationships with children and their families. We delight in providing children with a stimulating educational curriculum that fosters their sense of wonder and builds their confidence as active learners. We can’t wait to connect with you at Buckingham Road Early Learning and Kinder.

At our centre, you will find:

  • Our Bachelor qualified Kinder Teacher is keen to not only get your child school-ready, but to work in partnership you to build a resilient and caring child who is ready to embrace the world.
  • Our onsite cook is making fresh and nutritious meals to fuel your child’s body and mind. We provide breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and a late supper to support your child’s learning and play all day.
  • Our environments are purposefully designed to meet every child at their unique point of development. We understand not every child or family is the same, and our learning spaces reflect that. Like you, we wonder who they will be if we offer them the best start in life…
  • Our holistic curriculum is designed to achieve not only school readiness, but to nurture thoughtful, understanding and tolerant young citizens in a way that makes learning fun. Who knows what amazing ideas lie in these young minds?
  • When we say open-door policy, we mean it. We are here to support families in every way we can. Whenever you need to talk, we are here to listen.

Our fully-funded, all day Kindergarten program is led by a Bachelor trained Early Childhood Teacher. We offer a stimulating curriculum with the aim of building confident and active learners. Using a holistic approach to education, we combine school readiness programs with learning experiences to foster the social and emotional development of young children. Our integrated indoor/outdoor curriculum is child-directed and seeks to engage children in meaningful learning experiences that get them excited about learning and confident to commence their formal education journey.

Meet our Director: Merrissa Goodeve

Hi my name is Merrissa,

I first began in this rewarding Industry back in 2008, since then I have grown to love the direction this career has taken in terms of education for early years. Throughout my career I have developed respectful relationships with children, families and educators. I am a strong advocate for early education and the Reggio Emilia approach.

My goal is to encourage and support all educators to provide a high quality leading service in the sector and to create a sense of belonging for all Children, Families and Educators.
